Artist Statement

It is intriguing to me how the use of color and texture in tandem with simplified forms can convey deeper meanings and retain aesthetic appeal. Incorporating vivid equiluminant colors with metallic surfaces seem to play off of each other in interesting ways. Notably, the contrasting tone of fun and serious. My work utilizes abstract industrial shapes with organic features. It encompasses concepts of human invention, environment, and progress through networks of industrial themes.
